LASIK Eye Surgery Serving The Residents Of Boulder And Boulder Valley

LASIK surgeon Dr. Paul Cutarelli, through his Broomfield office near Boulder, proudly offers the most advanced laser vision correction available today to patients throughout the entire Boulder Valley area. Through every step of the surgery process, from consultation to recovery, Dr. Cutarelli will not only meet but exceed every patient’s expectations of what perfect vision can be.

Why Should I Get LASIK?

In a nutshell, LASIK can help you see better in a quick, painless and affordable way. Several conditions which affect your vision can be quickly and easily treated in a manner of minutes under the state-of-the-art technology and experienced eye of Dr. Cutarelli.

Worrying about updating prescriptions is a pain. Constantly trying to keep track of where your glasses are is inconvenient at best. After LASIK, daily hassles like these will be things of the past. On top of that, LASIK can also give you 20/20 vision or better, which can increase your quality of life in ways you hadn’t even imagined.

Why should you get LASIK? If you are a candidate (which most people are) and wish you had better vision, there’s no reason NOT to.

How Does LASIK Work?

Many vision problems are caused by irregularly-shaped corneas, which means that if your cornea is misshapen then light doesn’t get refracted properly, causing poor vision. This is why glasses have to be measured and fitted specifically to your vision – they also refract light, doing the job in place of your corneas. LASIK surgery, though, actually reshapes the cornea, which allows light to properly focus onto the retina. This is done through the use of lasers in a quick, painless procedure.

The first laser makes a tiny incision on the surface of the cornea, which isn’t nearly as scary as it sounds, especially when you consider that other, less advanced practices still do this with an actual metal blade. We promise – you won’t even know it’s happening.

After that, the second (or excimer) laser is used to reshape the corneal tissue below with gentle pulses of light. This is based on precise readings taken of your cornea’s shape prior to the actual surgery. When done, light will now properly pass through your cornea to your retina, effectively fixing your vision. It’s like having built-in glasses that are always tuned to your prescription!

What If I’m Not A Candidate For LASIK?

In the rare instances when someone is not safely eligible for LASIK, Dr. Cutarelli can still help improve their vision. We offer several LASIK alternatives, including a similar but different laser procedure known as PRK, the Visian Implantable Collamer Lens®, Refractive Lens Exchange and much more. Dr. Cutarelli is committed to help each and every one of his patients gain the best possible vision, so rest assured that if you come in seeking LASIK and are told that you’re not eligible, help is just a suggestion away.

Why Should I See Cutarelli Vision Over Other Boulder LASIK Surgeons?

Few, if any, eye doctors in the Boulder area (or, indeed, the nation) have the experience, training and compassion that Dr. Cutarelli has. With a residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital, a refractive surgery fellowship at Hunkeler Eye Center and an additional fellowship in anterior segment surgery and ocular disease at Morrfield’s Eye Hospital in London – not to mention having performed well over 90,000 LASIK procedures to date – Dr. Cutarelli is the clear choice for anyone in the Boulder area wanting to improve their vision. Cutarelli Vision’s reviews speak for themselves, so rest assured that you’re in the best possible hands when seeking laser vision correction at Cutarelli Vision’s Boulder Valley office.
